Description

Content

This book is intended for use as the main textbook for an introductory
course in CMOS analog integrated circuit design. It is aimed at electronics
engineering students who have followed basic courses in mathematics, physics,
circuit theory, electronics and signal processing. It takes the students
directly from a basic level to a level where they can start working on simple
analog IC design projects or continue their studies using more advanced
textbooks in the field.

A distinct feature of this book is an emphasis on the interaction
between analytical methods and simulation methods. Whenever relevant, the
theoretical concepts are illustrated both through traditional mathematical
models and through circuit simulations using the universally accepted program
SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis).

The material presented in this book has been adapted from material used
by the author for many years of teaching an introductory one-semester course (5
ECTS credits) in CMOS analog integrated circuit design at the Technical
University of Denmark.

A companion book about CMOS integrated circuit simulation with LTspice
is also available from bookboon, click here.
